In this white-knuckle thriller from the internationally
bestselling author of the “apocalyptic extravaganza”
(Publishers Weekly) The Hatching series, a family
moves into a home equipped with the world’s most
intelligent, cutting-edge, and intuitive computer ever—but a
buried secret leads to terrifying and catastrophic
After two years of living on cheap beer and little else in a
bitterly cold tiny cabin outside an abandoned, crumbling
mansion, young programmers Shawn Eagle and Billy Stafford
have created something that could make them rich: a
revolutionary computer they name Eagle Logic.
But the hard work and escalating tension have not been kind
to their once solid friendship—Shawn’s girlfriend Emily has
left him for Billy, and a third partner has disappeared
under mysterious circumstances. While Billy walks away with
Emily, Shawn takes Eagle Logic, which he uses to build a
multi-billion-dollar company that eventually outshines
Apple, Google, and Microsoft combined.
Years later, Billy is a failure, beset by poverty and
addiction, and Shawn is the most famous man in the world.
Unable to let the past be forgotten, Shawn decides to
resurrect his and Billy’s biggest failure: a next-generation
computer program named Nellie that can control a house’s
every function. He decides to set it up in the abandoned
mansion they worked near all those years ago. But something
about Nellie isn’t right—and the reconstruction of the
mansion is plagued by accidental deaths. Shawn is forced to
bring Billy back, despite their longstanding mutual hatred,
to discover and destroy the evil that lurks in the source code.
